FOUR men have been arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm after a Polish man was stabbed in the neck in Ipswich, Suffolk police announced today.

The victim's injuries were not life-threatening and he discharged himself from hospital yesterday after treatment at Ipswich Hospital following the incident on Saturday night.

Police were called after the injured man rang the doorbell of Jo Medhurst, from Samuel Court, off Woodbridge Road.

Mrs Medhurst said: “The doorbell rang at about 10.30pm. I wasn't going to open it at that hour but I looked through the window and could see a man standing there with blood on him from injuries to his head.

“He was Eastern European, Polish I think, and he asked me to call the police and the ambulance which I did straight away.

“I didn't want to open my door at that time of night but I went back to tell him I had called them but when I went back to the door I couldn't see him any more. I looked out of the window but he had gone.”

Mrs Medhurst said police officers and paramedics called at her house about 10 minutes later and she told them what had happened.

“I'm pleased that they found him and that he wasn't too badly hurt,” she added.

A police spokesman said the 22-year-old victim had been found near Woodbridge Road and he had suffered a puncture wound to his neck. He confirmed he was a Polish citizen.

Four other Polish nationals from the same address nearby were being questioned, they were aged 24, 28, 43, and one refused to give the police his age.
